Power steering pipe changed

Did this a while back, just thought I would share the experience

I have had a power steering leak that could not be 'bandaged' [8(] - stealers the only place to get 'em - so 100 worse off - I have changed the offending pipe today

New parts (only using one for now - if it aint broke, don't fix it [] )


Intake removed & battery tray out - 13mm & 10mm sockets & 10mm spanner


Undo clips by twisting a flat head screwdriver (note to self buy the proper 'pliers' [] ) & drain fluid into 'suitable' container [:$]


Shot of attempted bandage - 10/10 for my effort - 0/10 for result (bit like my karting [LOL] )


Old pipe out - bit of 'jiggery pokery' involved getting it out - not too stressful really []


New pipe in - again a bit of 'JP' involved getting it in - again not too stresful [] [] (tis like a 3D jigsaw [:P] )


I replaced the lower 'clip' with jubliee type [:$]


I had to use the longest extension arrangement to tighten it though [LOL]


Bracket re-attached using 10mm socket (was removed for investingation / bandage escapade) - this is where the problem was (see later photo for damage) - sorry for the poor focus [:$]




The offending area - looks pretty nasty [:s]


Drink lager while doing write-up [] [=D>]

(note to self for future projects - buy the special clip pliers [] )
